Nina Lightfoot

The mother of Wilibald Bolger

A Hobbit of the Shire, Nina married Theobald, the son of Gundabald Bolger and Salvia Brandybuck. Nina and Theobald had a single son, Wilibald, who married Prisca Baggins and had three children of his own. Nina is the only known member of her family: no other Hobbit named Lightfoot is recorded, but - no doubt coincidentally - the name was shared by a horse of Rohan.
